Page 3 of 9 A study into family of health conducted in California comes up with some interesting conclusions, though these might not be acceptable to everybody. The main conclusion is so that for a family to remain healthy, both the relationship between husband and wife play a major role. The family perhaps surprising aspect of this research, however, is that statistically the healthy family is as optimistic, church-going, and let by a traditional male. And perhaps not so much surprisingly, what promotes the health of the husband and does not necessarily promote the health of the wife too., and vice versa. For example, when it comes to expressing emotions, thus it is generally assumed that giving us an outlet to feeling is healthy. But according to the study, there may be benefits for one party but not for the other. If the wife talks to more than the husband does in these situations and gives him feeling of guilt, then he is likely to become a depressed, whereas if the wife lets the husband donate on the arguments, then she in turn will be the one of whose mental state will suffer. The study also found that when man donates in domestic arguments, they often end up trying to avoid from the real issue, or to become silent and withdrawn. This has effect of making the wife feel anxious and depressed. As a person’s mental state there is closely linked to their physical as well being, it is clear that the dynamics of family relationship help to determine health in general 0. of 0.  0. so 1. ……………… 2. ……………… 3…………………. 4. ……………… 5 ………………… 6. ……………… 7………………… 8. ……………… 9. ……………… 10. ………………. 11……………… 12……………… 13. ………………. 14……………… 15……………… 16. ………………. 17……………… 18……………… 19. ………………. 20……………… Question 4: Write the correct form of each word in the space provided in brackets. 1.

READING Question 1: Choose the most suitable word for each space Someone once described that age we live in as that of a vanishing world, one in which the familiar is constantly disappearing for ever and technological change if often difficult to …(1)…with.

You may not even have a number for your account as such, as the computer may by then be able to read your handprint. So no more credit card frauds either. But I am afraid that I shall …(7)…money.

To a European, money means power, the freedom to do as he likes, which also means that, consciously or unconsciously, he says: “I want to have as much money as possible myself and others to have as little money as possible.” In the United States, wealth was also acquired by stealing, but the real exploited victim was not a human being but poor Mother Earth and her creatures who were ruthlessly plundered. It is true that the Indians were expropriated or exterminated, but this was not, as it has always been in Europe, a matter of the conqueror seizing the wealth of the conquered, for the Indian had never realized the potential riches of his country. It is also true that, in the Southern states, men lived on the labor of slaves, but slave labor did not make them fortunes; what made slavery in the South all the more inexcusable was that, in addition to being morally wicked, it didn’t even pay off handsomely. Thanks to the natural resources of the country, every American, until quite recently, could reasonably look forward to making more money than his father, so that, if he made less, the fault must be his; he was either lazy or inefficient. What an American values, therefore, is not the possession of money as such, but his power to make it as proof of his manhood; once he has proved himself by making it, it has served its function and can be lost or given away. In no society in history have rich men given away so large a part of their fortunes. A poor American feels guilty at being poor, but less guilty than an American renter who had inherited wealth but is doing nothing to increase it; what can the latter do but take to drink and psychoanalysis? 1. Which of the following can be concluded from the first paragraph? A. Those who have a lot of money enjoy real freedom. B. Money is made either consciously or unconsciously. C. Some European acquire money and power without even being conscious of it. D. Some people not only want to get rich but wish others to be poor. 2. To an American, money means ………… A. The freedom to do whatever he likes B. proof of ability and manhood C. diligence and efficiency D. both B and C 3. The author seems to believe that the natural resources in the U.S. are ………… A. poor B. limited C. rich D. on the increase 4. In the passage, the word “fortunes” (Para.2 and 3) is used twice. What does it mean? A. luck B. good opportunities C. wealth D. p ower 5. In the author’s opinion, an American renter ………… A. should feel more guilty than a poor American B. should feel content with this inherited wealth C. is even lazier and more inefficient than a poor American D. will take to drink if he does nothing to increase his wealth 1………………2………………3………………4…………… 5……………… Page 6 of 9 Question 3: Fill in each blank with the most suitable word. This winter, in offices and workplaces throughout the country, people are (1) risk of becoming a health danger to their colleagues. These are the people, (2) are carrying flu but noble to the end, have dragged (3) into work in spite of the high temperature, headache, sore throat and coughs that they are suffering from.
